All of the services here worked great...water pressure was good, sewer, electric, cable tv all worked fine. The wi-fi was good, of course we were across from the office. The people are very professional and helpful. Park is maintained beautifully, with freshly raked gravel sites and neatly mowed lawn. The sites are a little close, but they are arranged on an angle to lessen the feel of being packed in. The location was great with relation to the path to bike on; the river was right next to the park. It is on a bus line if you want to take that into San Antonio, a nice city to visit. We would come here again.

Date of Stay:

All sites are concrete, large, and have room for the picnic table as well. We were parked under some beautiful oak trees and there is a lot of space between sites. All of the hookups worked well, including cable tv. Wi-Fi was more than adequate. Their laundry room is large, clean and reasonably priced. The exercise room is very nice, and the pool and hot tub look brand new! The women at the front desk are all very personable and helpful. We would come here again if in the area.

We found this park to be exactly what we needed. We are towing a Jeep behind our motor home, and the long pull through concrete sites let us leave it hooked up for our stay. The bathrooms are immaculate! And the same goes for the laundry room, complete with an iron and ironing board, which I was looking for in our last "resort" park in New Orleans! The prices for laundry are very fair, too, only $1 to wash or dry. Everyone I met was friendly and helpful, and they offer a free breakfast every morning. We would not pick this park for long term, but for a quick stop just off I-10 it is perfect. We will return.

It's all about the location. The French Quarter is a five minute walk away; that's why we're here. The Resort is basically a (very neat) parking lot for RV's. It is right next to I-10. We got a Good Sam discount, but paid extra for being here during the Festival weekend. Pool, laundry, exercise room all looked acceptable, but we didn't use them. Security was good, 24/7; we felt safe here. But it is very expensive for the opportunity to be close to the action! Wi-fi was slow. No picnic tables. No extras to speak of. We would come back if we wanted to be in the French Quarter again.

Price was a Florida residents senior rate. Campground was satisfactory, sites were spacious enough, water pressure and electric service were good. Close to Perdido Key and Pensacola. The park itself is not too exciting; we walked their boardwalks. No sewer, so not a long term place for us. Good spot for the price, though.

This park is very clean and neat, has large concrete pads for your rig and the picnic table. Landscaping is also very nice and neat. Our negatives were for the closeness of the sites. They really pack them in here, and the roads are also very congested, no room for anything on the roadways. We had a strong Verizon signal, but their own wi-fi signal is weak. Our biggest complaint was the very weak water pressure. It was so bad that I had to use their showers to wash my hair. The shower was small but fine once I figured out that the hot and cold controls were reversed! We would look at one of the other local RV parks the next time we come through here.

Price of $38 (incl.tax) is an average, since we were here over March and April when the rates change. This park is practically perfect! It has 398 sites, all with full hookups, and most of those sites are very nicely spaced, most with vegetation between sites. The sites are also quite deep, which allows you to get farther away from the road. Showers are clean and have good water pressure and plenty of hot water. The Verizon signal was strong, which gave us our hot spot for internet. (I did try their internet once; it was not a strong signal at our site.) We were in a shaded spot, but they have cable tv. They have a large laundry area, screened in pool and hot tub, playground, etc. We were here right at the end of the winter season, so saw lots of seasonals getting ready to leave. All of the sites were kept very neat, even the seasonals. It is very quiet and peaceful here, and of course the city of Crystal River is 10 minutes away, with a Publix for shopping. They even have a free car wash area, which was appreciated by our filthy Jeep! Campfires are only allowed in your own raised platform type grill, so not many fires were going, which made me happy! We would definitely come here again.

As others have noted, the Palmetto Ridge section is awesome! It has full hookups, very unusual for a state park, and very well spaced, private sites, which is unusual for full hookups. The bathrooms were very clean, and the personnel actually rake each site after each camper leaves. Oh, yeah, the sites are full gravel and level, very neat and clean. The only reason we didn't rate it higher is because we had virtually no phone (Verizon) and therefore no internet. For an overnight stay we didn't care, but it would not have worked for long term. Great park, though, we would return.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here for four days while testing out the RV before going on a 6 month adventure. Since this park is full during the winter season, we stayed at one site (A-5) for 3 nights and at another site (E-9) for the fourth night. The first site was only an estimated 1400' from a busy elevated interstate and was very noisy. The further back in the park you go, the quieter it becomes. E loop was quite nice. This is a municipal park and offers a great dog park, boating access, a target range and lots of space for picnicking. The loops were each in a tight circle with some pads but mostly dirt and grass. The sewer hookups are located close to the road unfortunately, so you have to keep your rig close, too. There are a few trees and bushes for privacy. We would come here again but would definitely want to stay in the back part of the park.

Price reflects TT membership. Yes, the entrance to this park is wedged between two stone walls, pretty stupid. But we loved the park. It is beautiful with huge oak trees throughout. Our site also had a concrete pad to park next to, and it was very level. Flagler Beach is very low key, and the Bulow Plantation State Park is right next store to explore. It is convenient to I-95 without hearing traffic noise. The only negative for us was a weak Verizon signal, so not a strong Internet. We will definitely be back.

Price reflects Thousand Trails membership. This was our third attempt at a TT member park, and what a nice difference from the first two! People at the office are very friendly, there was no front gate locking us out. They gave us a site but had no problem when we changed it. Tall oak trees provide plenty of shade, and though we couldn't get satellite TV, they do offer cable TV for a small fee. Our site was so level we didn't bother putting the leveling jacks down for a two day stay. We had no problem driving in a 36' motorhome, but could see how longer rigs have a tight squeeze around some of the trees. They offer free Wi-Fi at the office; our Verizon had a weak signal. Easy to find just off I-95, just turn at the Waffle House. We would definitely come back here.

Rate reflects TT membership. This was our second experience with a TT park; the first was horrible, so this seemed great by comparison! We really don't like the self-service way they do things, we think it is tough to have to drive a big rig around a park to pick out a site. We picked a spot in C loop out in the open, not very scenic but we wanted tv satellite reception. We paid an extra $3/day for 50 amp, not a big deal. The Verizon signal was very strong, so we had internet. Walking trails are nice, and the pools and lake are pretty. Roads are mostly gravel, need a little smoothing out. As previously reported the seasonal people have the nicest sites. All in all we might come back here but it would be nice to have a better way to pick out your site.

Date of Stay:

This park was our first taste of a Thousand Trails park, and wasn't good. We were given a free membership with the purchase of our used motor home. Upon arriving at the park, you have to stop at the front gate and call a ranger via a radio. He comes out and gives you your paperwork and with no other guidance sets you free to drive around and pick out your site. The roads are very rough, some gravel and a lot of dirt, so incredibly dusty. The first site we found turned out not to have sewer; it would have been nice if their map reflected that fact. Our next site (A-23) did have sewer and we stayed there, but it was very uneven. Most of the area around our site was so unlevel it was mostly unusable. Our Verizon signal wasn't strong enough to carry a wi-fi connection. The lake and so-called beach was littered with feathers and feces from the Canada Geese. The pool was closed for the season (on Sept. 6th). We walked around later and found that the C Loop looks better than A, more level and all sites had sewer hookups, we think. Of course there is only 30 amp here for electricity. The whole feel of the place is of a run down park that could be beautiful with some TLC and unfortunately lots of money. We would never come here again.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects the upcharge for 50 amp. I'm guessing that's also why we were put in a tight lineup with other rigs when all over the park there were open spots. We don't like being so close to our neighbors that our picnic table is practically under their slide. I had to use their laundry and thought that 3 washing machines were not enough for a park this size. The wifi signal was strong, a good thing since Verizon is very weak here. This park is very well kept and is expensive given that they have all the kids' amenities but on an 88 degree day in early September the pool was closed! We will find another park to go to next year as we head south.

Mayfair is a great campground, with large sites and lots of grassy areas, trees and waterfront sites. We camped here for a week around Labor Day weekend and the campground was never that full. It was perfect for us as we had a family reunion and everyone was able to gather around on our site on the west side of the campground, which has a huge grassy area behind the site. The Wi-Fi worked great most of the time. Our only complaint about this campground would be the location of the trash and recycling area at one end of the property. We would definitely come here again.
